    Hey

    As you know im gettn a white vq shell on the weekend, im just thinkn on what sorta white should i go, like i know there are tones of diff whites u can get im gunna want the brightest one i can get lol if that makes sence. im also thinkn on putting a pearl in wot ur thoughts on that?

    Um im just debating on if i should go 2pac or acrylic? one thing is tho i dont think ill be puttn all the panels on untill i have painted them an do the roof an Q/Panels along with the door jam i hate doin door jams. lol

    Also id more than likely make my mate paint it as he owes me money so ill make him work it off. but when we did my vk calais in undercoat i dont think we gave it a nice thick coat, is it best to get it thick as u can or doesnt matter with that side of it?

    Thanks For Reading

    Jamie

    I have had both Alpine White and Polar White on commodores. They are both nice, depending on what you are after. Either would be very nice with a pearl through and if you can afford it go 2-Pac.

    get 100% white tinter as the holden white ranges has yellows and other colours in them making them a bit duller, pearl would look good too i would go with blue but it comes down to personal choice.

    I'd personally go with a nice alpine white :) If money isn't an issue, a bit of pearl wouldn't hurt, but I think a nice straight crisp white looks beautiful enough. If you can balance up a nice amount of black/white in the trim, you could be on to a winner. black/white cars can look very aggressive :)

    As far as your undercoat question goes, if you can get it over there without having funny lisences etc, 2K Fastbuild primer works a treat.. of the boddywork is a little pitted or whatever, that stuff will fill it nicely. get it in gray if you are finishing in white. A light sand before you spray your colour, it'll come up mint
